Kristina Wong never thought sewing masks would turn into a published book and an off-Broadway hit show but life doesn't always turn out the way we expect, now does it? From performer to politician to activist, Kristina wears so many hats - or in this case, masks - many of them at the same time, even she can't keep track. When the pandemic hit, she had a calling to DO something, so she found her own light in the darkness, and the Auntie Sewing Squad was born. They delivered thousands upon thousands of masks - and much more including a used ambulance - to people and communities in need. Ever the over-achiever, Kristina didn't stop there: She published the book, THE AUNTIE SEWING SQUAD GUIDE TO MASK MAKING, RADICAL CARE, AND RACIAL JUSTICE, based on her year-long experience. And then she decided to over-over-achieve her over-achievement and KRISTINA WONG, SWEATSHOP OVERLORD opened off-Broadway on November 4th to rave reviews. She's equally inspiring as she is hilarious and apparently never sleeps. Her journey will rally you to create a good squad of your own.

Stephen Levenson is a Tony award winning playwright and screenwriter who famously won his Best Book of a Musical Tony for Dear Evan Hansen. He later adapted the script for the film adaptation. Stephen has numerous Off-Broadway credits, as well as a resume boasting TV and film. He was a writer for the Showtime series Masters of Sex, and served as show runner for the miniseries Fosse/Verdon. Most recently Stephen penned the screenplay for Lin-Manuel Miranda's film adaptation of Jonathan Larson's biographical musical tick, tick… Boom!, starring Andrew Garfield and available now on Netflix.  Stephen shares an inside look to all aspects of his newest project, from the research, to the writing, to casting, through production. He recalls acting in a production of tick, tick… Boom! in college, already having reverence for Jonathon Larson, and how desperately he wanted to be involved in 2017 when he heard Lin-Manuel would be directing a film adaptation. Stephen talks about the impact of COVID on filming, which shut down the production after only 10 days in March 2020, and how the pandemic gave the film a new urgency once shooting resumed. He also opens up about the weight and responsibility he felt telling someone else's story in tick,tick… Boom!, versus writing a script with his own original thoughts and ideas in Dear Evan Hansen.  In this episode, we talk about:  The extensive research and process behind the script for tick, tick… Boom!  Having Julie Larson on board and in the room Andrew Garfield's progression from non-singer, to musical theater performer Workshopping the film as if it were a stage production Working with Netflix versus a traditional big studio Watch the Tick...

In this episode, Jeannette talks to Michael Goldstrom who is the founder and CEO of GetMotivatedBuddies. He explains how his battle with ADHD and what he learned while working as an actor, narrator, and voice artist combined to inspire him to set up a new style of support network. One that is based on behavioural psychology and has already helped nearly 15,000 people to achieve difficult goals that many had failed to achieve previously. Michael explains how acting taught him to look at and understand the motivation of the characters he played. A skill he was then able to use on himself to identify what was holding him back. He and Jennette discuss the methods he then employed to break bad habits and finally move forwards. If you have difficult goals that you are struggling to achieve this podcast will be helpful.   KEY TAKEAWAYS We can all develop into the person we want to be. Explore ways of managing your life to find what works for you. Most people suffer from information overload. The way social media algorithms work is leading to people living a life that does not align with their core beliefs. Michael explains why that is in the podcast. Not being able to filter out things so you can focus on what is important leads to information overload and physical issues. As you progress towards your goals evaluate how you are feeling as well as how you are progressing. Having buddies to support you through change greatly improves your chances of succeeding in forming a new positive habit. View yourself holistically, often improving one thing will have a positive impact on multiple areas of your life. GetMotivatedBuddies is aligning people who want to help people, with those who are actively seeking that kind of support. The platform does much more than just provide accountability partners. It also challenges you and does so in a positive way.   BEST MOMENTS ‘There are three steps – human belief, direction (a goal), and steps that take you there.' ‘The misalignment of our daily actions with our beliefs is precisely why people are lonelier.' ‘It´s very important to have a system in place to evaluate where we are at in life and check how we´re feeling.'   This is the perfect time to get focused on what YOU want to really achieve in your business, career, and life. It's never too late to be BRAVE and BOLD and unlock your inner BRILLIANCE.

He's taught acting at Los Angeles Opera and directed Mozart's last opera at Cal State University Long Beach and gave a TEDx talk on acting for opera. His short film Press or Say “2” premiered in over 20 film festivals. After being diagnosed with ADHD, he became certified in Tiny Habits with BJ Fogg at Stanford and began collating the vast amount of evidence-based research on behavior change, motivation, and well-being to link tiny habits to larger goals. This research led to the development of the GetMotivatedBuddies platform which integrates the principles of communal behavior change and personal transformation from the theatre. Meanwhile, he built a community of over 14,000 people desperately looking for community support with their health, education, and work goals while growing the GetMotivatedBuddies subreddit to over 90k subscribers and winning the 2 Minute Drill pitch competition on Bloomberg TV/Amazon Prime.

What A Word!

The word is passion. And for Loretta Merritt it all starts with the voice. In fact, the Brooklyn native and youngest of five children has always enjoyed singing ever since her days coming up in the church where she was a featured talent in the children, youth, and young adult choirs. Loretta's passion for music was ignited when she was first exposed to gospel legends such as the Clark Sisters, Cece Winans, and Yolanda Adams. The gifted vocalist's strong foundation was set. For her it was always bigger than just music. It was and remains Loretta's life. She was blessed and excited to utilize her singing and acting abilities, in 1985, in an Off-Broadway play, “I'm Reaching for the Stars” in New York City, where she had a leading role. Excerpts of the play were later aired on the Manhattan Cable Television.   She was later inspired to sing, record, and tour with the renowned gospel choir James Hall and Worship and Praise. The choir was privileged to perform at The Stellar Awards, Bobby Jones BET, New York City Rockefeller Christmas Tree Lighting, along with Gladys Knight, Michael Bolton, and other renowned artists, to name a few. “Singing with the choir was one of the greatest experiences in my life,” says Loretta. “The power in our voices exuded greatness!” She adds. Loretta was thrilled to have the opportunity to develop her vocal talents further at the Juilliard Adult Evening Program in 2013. She studied the basics of vocal performance and mastered a wide variety of music from the layered complexities of classical to the bombastic majesty of Broadway.   With hard work, dedication, and faith, one of Loretta's dreams became a reality. She released her first single, “No One Greater” on April 26, 2019, played on The Bobby Parker Radio Show, The Gospel Grind Radio, WJOU Praise 90.1FM, and all digital platforms.   At the 25th Annual Gospel Choice Music Awards in 2019, Loretta Merritt took home New Independent Artist of the Year award. On September 2019 she sang at “Christmas in September,” a live taping at Jamaica Performing Arts Center in New York, which was aired on Tim Warner (Spectrum) 79 & 1998 | Cablevision (Optimum) 68 | RCN 83, Verizon FIOS 43, and online streaming worldwide.   Loretta enjoys performing at various concerts. On June 6, 2020, Loretta ministered in songs at the Saturday Night A.M.N. Live, via YouTube and Facebook, where she sung, “Turning Around for Me.” No matter what people were going through during the pandemic Loretta wanted her audience to know that God will turn the situation around. Loretta has been working with Grammy Winner Singer-Songwriter, Makeba Riddick-Woods at the Young Dreamers Consulting Agency where Loretta has found her sound, recorded songs. August 20, 2021, she released her amazing Single, “His Name,” written by Makeba Riddick-Woods and produced by Kid Classic and her Official Music Video was released October 22, 2021. For Loretta singing is not only a passion but also where she finds joy. Making an impact in people's lives; encouraging others, uplifting, and ushering them into the presence of the Lord is her true calling. Loretta's singing has touched audiences and they, in turn, have impacted her by just knowing that they were blessed. Loretta humbly states, “I was touched when a young teen girl came to me crying because my singing resonated with her, as she was going through challenges. It is times like this when I know I am living in my purpose and my singing is not in vain.”Her inspiration in writing songs comes from life experiences of herself and others. As she is creating, putting pen to paper, she believes when the lyrics are heartfelt and moves her, it will move others. “Music is a language of its own; It can reach people where other avenues cannot, which is why it is so powerful,” explains Loretta. Loretta believes that through God we can do all things and is forever grateful to serve Him through this ministry. “God has entrusted me to share my gift to the world, --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/whataword/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/whataword/support

"Tomorrow is now" as hosts Bobby and Kristina discuss 1989's Annie 2: Miss Hannigan's Revenge and 1993's Annie Warbucks on episode twenty of My Favorite Flop.   ABOUT ANNIE 2: MISS HANNIGAN'S REVENGE The first official attempt at a sequel to the hit Broadway musical Annie, Annie 2: Miss Hannigan's Revenge follows the continued story of villainous Miss Hannigan as she escapes from prison to marry Daddy Warbucks, steal his fortune, and rid the world of of Little Orphan Annie once and for all. The musical features a book by Thomas Meehan, lyrics by Martin Charin, and music by Charles Strouse. At the closing performance of Annie 1, lyricist Martin Charnin stood onstage and told the audience that the story of Annie was not over and that a sequel to the musical was already in the works. Six years later, hundreds of little girls in their red velvet dresses pilgrimaged to Washington D.C. with their parents to get a first look at what was excepted to be one of the biggest hits on Broadway the following season. Little did they know that Annie 2 would feature very little Annie at all and, instead, would tell the misguided redemption story of the first musical's villain. The entire project was a manifestation of the creative team's own insecurities of now being best-known for writing a fluffy kids musical and not their more-serious previous works... so, they set out to prove to the industry that they could follow it up with something more complex and grown up. The happy endings we see at the end of Annie 1 we find out were short lived. Daddy Warbucks discovers that he can't legally adopt Annie as a single father, so he must find a wife and because of that, Annie's future is uncertain. Grace, who has genuine feelings for the billionaire, must balance her career and personal life as she is passed over for other candidates. And Hannigan must come to terms with her quest for revenge and money as she confronts her own past and humanity. The creative team had hoped that fans of the original musical had grown up with them and would appreciate their cynical take on what happens after "tomorrow". Sadly, "something was missing", and what that was what attracted so many fans to the original piece - the absolute charm of Annie and her orphan friends. Throughout the run in D.C., desperate changes were made to the show to fix that tonal issues, including adding more Annie and additional orphan characters from the original, but a major financial backer decided to leave the show and it's scheduled Broadway run (the marquee was already up!) was cancelled. Annie 2 would then go through a process of rewrites and restructuring at the Goodspeed Opera House that would not only remove Miss Hannigan from the show's title, but from the show completely... eventually evolving into a different sequel titled Annie Warbucks!   Original Washington Cast Dorothy Loudon as Miss Hannigan Fiely Matias as The Asp Gerry McIntyre as Punjab Lauren Mitchell as Grace Farrell Harve Presnell as Oliver Warbucks Danielle Findley as Annie Warbucks Beau as Sandy Marian Seldes as Mrs. Christmas Ronny Graham as Lionel McCoy Terrence P. Currier as Drake Raymond Thorne as FDR Ellyn Arons as Eleanor Roosevelt   ABOUT ANNIE WARBUCKS Another attempt at as a sequel to the hit Broadway musical Annie, Annie Warbucks begins immediately after Annie ends as  Daddy Warbucks learns that he must marry within sixty days or else Annie will be returned to the orphanage. The musical features a book by Thomas Meehan, lyrics by Martin Charin, and music by Charles Strouse. Annie Warbucks was developed in a workshop at the Goodspeed Opera House, directed by Charnin and choreographed by Peter Gennaro and under the direction of Michael P. Price, Executive Director. The musical played several out-of-town tryouts, starting at the Marriott Lincolnshire, Chicago in February through April 1992 and then the Drury Lane in Oak Brook, Illinois, followed by a five city United States tour, including San Diego in October 1992. It was originally planned that Annie Warbucks would open on Broadway, but a "major investor pulled out". Some characters were cut and the budget reduced, leading to delays. The Off-Broadway production opened on August 9, 1993, at the Variety Arts Theatre. The cast included Harve Presnell as Warbucks, Donna McKechnie as Sheila Kelly, and Kathryn Zaremba in the title role. The show broke all off-Broadway box office records for the time, running for 200 performances. The producers considered moving the show from the Variety Arts Theater to Broadway, and they secured $2.5 million from an investor for a move to Broadway, but discovered they couldn't make the move in time to be eligible for Tony Award consideration, which was a big part of the reason for moving in the first place. A provision in the Tony rules required that a show had to transfer to a Tony-eligible theatre within 30 weeks of its original opening in order to qualify for any nominations. The investor pulled out, ending the plans.   Original Off-Broadway Cast Kathryn Zaremba as Annie Warbucks Harve Presnell as Daddy Warbucks Donna McKechnie as Mrs. Sheila Kelly Alene Robertson as Commissioner Harriet Doyle Marguerite MacIntyre as Grace Farrell Kip Niven as Drake Raymond Thorne as FDR Cindy Lou as Sandy

She was also in the original Good Vibrations on Broadway and on the first national tour of Jersey Boys along with many other Off-Broadway production tours. After performing on Happy Days, Jackie moved out to Los Angeles permanently where she began work on many films, television shows, and performed all over LA. Through her podcast, The Evolution Podclub, Jackie is sharing what she knows about the power of living a life based in love rather than fear and how to apply it to all areas of your life. In this episode, Jackie and I talk about helping others to understand how to process your limiting beliefs, how our individual ascension experiences have influenced our relationships with our partners, and what Jackie went through to spark her manifestation journey.
